Rated 5 out of 5 by Darlin2 Wonderful piece - great looking and very useful!
I love this console. It is a great spot to put out horsdevores for a party or decorations for the seasons or holidays. Inside there is plenty of room. I use it to store supplies for entertaining such as special platters and trays, candles and wine. It blends in beautifully like an heirloom piece. I get many compliments on it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by DanaD Great piece for the price.
What a nice addition to my foyer! It is just the right size, beautifully styled, and quite well built. If I were not already a loyal Ballard customer, this console would convince me. Thanks for such a great buying experience!

I bought my Dehavilland console in white about 3 1/2 years ago. The first one I had for about 6 months when I noticed small cracks appearing in the top veneer. Since I had a linen cloth across the top protecting it I was surprised. I called Ballard and they immediately replaced it with another one. My second one has had no problems and is beautiful. I have a lot of dishes in my cabinet so we have realized that we need to put an extra support in for the top shelf, easy fix. I love it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by AmyB1927 Great style-mediocre workmanship
I love the look and design of this piece. It is quite functional. However, having ordered other pieces from Ballard in the past, I found it not quite up to the same standard of quality. The inside of one of the drawers was warped and split. The paint job on the exterior showed white unpainted places at some of the joints. I am keeping the piece as my husband was able to repair the drawer, and cover the exposed white seams, but I am not completely satisfied with this product.

I actually bought this piece of furniture for a client. I wanted to use as a media station. she loved it. I did notice a few scratches on the furniture and legs however, I think it added to the charm. If I was needing a console I would consider this piece.

Beautiful addition to my new kitchen. Arrived perfectly packaged. It holds my grandmothers silver, my good dishes and still has plenty of room for table linens and various other items.
Well worth the money!!!

This piece arrived in perfect condition, only required assembly of feet (easy), and looks absolutely beautiful. We got the black, and have gotten so many compliments already. It is large and spacious without seeming massive and does not overpower the room. I highly recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by organizer4keeps Perfect for my husband's office to store his binders in.
Turned a garage bay into a beautiful home office. This piece fits perfectly with the other office furniture we had and is being used to house binders and other study material.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Luv2makecards This console has lots of room
I wanted a storage piece that would be attractive with our new family room furniture. I hesitated at first to buy this piece because it looked more red in the picture. It is exactly the size and storage area I wanted.
It is redder than I think walnut usually is.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Barb35 The Dehavilland console lived up to its ratings.
I am very pleased with the console and with the ordering/delivery process. It was delivered on time with no damage. The overall quality of the console is good. I am using it in my kitchen and it affords me the storage space that I was looking for when I ordered it.

We were a little nervous about ordering a buffet online but we are very happy we did. The color, size and structure are wonderful crafted and built to last. It was package great and arrived very quickly. We had it out of the packing and set up in less than 30 mins. I would recommend this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by RemysMom Meets all expectations
While not necessarily heirloom quality, this piece is sturdy and attractive. I chuckled at other reviewers' comments regarding the packaging, but I have to agree that it was pretty impressive and the console arrived in perfect condition. I was able to easily move the piece into place by myself. I ultimately plan on covering with granite, as this is in my kitchen, and I'm told by the granite folks that the console should not have any issue supporting the extra weight.

Rated 3 out of 5 by HMBAnnie It does the job at a good price.
It is the right dimensions and about the right color, but not what I had hoped for. I had a wood sample from Ballard for the Antoinette sideboard in a nice Off White on Gray. The Antoinette is higher and a little longer, so it doesn't work in our dining room. This sideboard came in a cheaper flat veneer with much less texture. The veneer had popped off on both sides of the shelf , and is a bit lumpy on the top corner of the unit. I seriously thought about returning it, but decided that it does the job at the sale price which was twenty five percent of the original cost.

Rated 5 out of 5 by pep1224 A beautiful console for a great price
This console is even better looking in person than it was in the on line photograph and is a great value for the price. I ordered the console in the mahogany finish and found the tone rich and beautiful....not at all too red. The curved corners, the hardware, and the handsome legs add nice finishing touches. Its dimensions made it the perfect fit to go underneath our large flat screen TV.

Rated 1 out of 5 by doc1 Could be nice if damaged peices were not sent!
Ordered this in Black and loved the size and how it looks, but after receiving 3 damaged buffets, I gave up. The worst part is that they were sent damaged. In one case, a chunk was broken off the bottom and glued back on. In another case, there was a chunk of wood missing and it looked like it was colored over with a marker. The black sheen was different! Such a huge waste of my time!

Rated 5 out of 5 by FloRo Very versatile piece of furniture
I bought this for my dining room to hold liquor and tablelinens. I had been looking in furniture stores locally, but the consoles I saw were too large so I ordered the 2-drawer console from Ballard and it is the perfect size. It is well worth the price. It arrived very well packaged and in excellent condition.

Rated 3 out of 5 by H2H4 The table has good storage space, but quality of stain not so good
Overall I am happy with the console table. We did have some issues around the quality of the stain as the stain was even on the doors. We were applied a credit, but I would have preferred to have the stain evenly across the doors. The storage space is great and it was easy to assemble when we received it.

This buffet is exactly what I was looking for. It is a solid piece and have already gotten a ton of compliments about how it looks in my place. The three drawers fit lots of drinkware accessories- wine charms, coasters, bottle openers, etc. The only think I wish it had (as others mentioned) is adjustable shelves in each door section. There is one large shelf that spans the inside of the piece. Overall it is beautiful and plan to get great use out of it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Oceangirl Beautiful console works perfectly in our new home's kitchen dining area!
We chose the rubbed cream finish for our console and it blends perfectly with our existing kitchen table and chairs. The storage is handy for plates, napkins, salad bowls, and serving pieces.

This is a lovely console, with more handsome details than I expected. Sturdy and attractive. Works perfectly with our British Colonial decor. Having the extra storage is fantastic.

It is beautiful to look at and holds a lot. I needed storage space as well as something attractive. This piece made it happen. Not only beautiful with nice lines but the rubbed cream is a nice soft shade of off white. I couldn't be happier with the purchase.

I received the mahogany one today. Stunning. Larger than I expected which is a good thing. I was pleasantly surprised. I highly recommend it. Packaging was great. Comes fully assembled. Only things you need to simply screw on is legs and place shelf inside.

Rated 4 out of 5 by happyhome1 Great piece of furniture
Love this piece of furniture. The adjustable legs worked great to make sure it was level. Wish the shelf were 3 difference pieces for different heights. The top doesn't have a protective coat on it, but otherwise great for the price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by dcdawg Nice quality and great price
I had been looking at this console for a while, but once it went on Bring Home Ballard I knew I had to jump on it at the reduced price. I had some reservations about ordering this piece from a catalog, but am glad I did. The color is a true mahogany color and matches an antique hutch we have in mahogany as well. The back of it is unfinished, which is only an issue for us because the back is facing stair railings so it is actually seen. But I don't mind that much. We had it delivered to the door and I took it out of the box and set it up. If you choose to do this yourself, you only have to flip it over and screw in the legs. It is moderately heavy, so I would suggest two people doing this. Overall I am very impressed with the quality and price. I will definitely order from Ballard Designs again!

Rated 5 out of 5 by MolliesNewBathroom Excellent product and great service.
This is just what I was looking for for my kitchen. It is well-made for the price, and being on sale was another plus.
Delivery was easy and quicker than expected. I love the satin black color. It fits well in my kitchen. And, the assembly was attaching the legs.
This is a great item.
